Default Ubuntu - Geforce GT 240 - FAH

I put a geforce gt 240 in my linux server. I was drunk and inpatient, but couldn't figure out how to install the drivers. I download them from Nvidia, and tried ubuntu forms, along with driver manager. I got nothing. Second thing is is there a FAH build for linux and nvidia?

There is no GPU client for Linux, but it is possible to run the Windows client through WINE.

I guess you get better performance even though you using it through wine.

I just got the geforce gt 240. I dont have a computer built to put it in, except my 16 core linux server. Which it fit in amazingly. I was trying to get more ppd until I got the other computers up and running. Might not be worth the hastle.

I'll try the 256 drivers.

I've never been able to successfully get GPU folding going while running Ubuntu even with multiple tries on different OS versions. I haven't tried it in the last 6-8 months though, so keep us posted on how you make out please.
